Max: (Saying the Lord’s prayer as fast as he can)
Maggie: Whatcha doing Max?
Max: I’m practicing speed-praying, hey, how loud can you pray?
Maggie: I don’t know, I don’t yell like some people. Since Jesus lives in my heart, I know he hears me even when I just think a prayer. Why?
Max: I’m looking for different events for the Christian Olympics.
Maggie: I’ve never heard of that, what is it?
Max: You know how we’ve been watching the Olympics?
Max: Well I got a better idea for Olympics?
Maggie: Oh really?
Max: Yeah, the Bible says, All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. We’re after one that’s gold eternally. (1 Cor. 9:24 TMB)
Maggie: It sounds like its talking about Heaven.
Max: Right on, being a Christian is like a race, Heaven is our finish line.
Maggie: Do you think we’ll get a medal and a laurel?
Max: A laurel? Is that the hat thingie? I hope we don’t get that, it looks like a giant toilet brush. It would hide my awesomely stylish flattop. (substitute one of your puppets physical charistics)
Maggie: The Bible talks about crowns, trumpets, streets of gold, and anthems of praise.
Max: Now you see why I’m praying, right? I’m gonna train hard cause that’s a race worth winning.
Maggie: Hey, I know a praise anthem about Heaven, wanna sing it with me?
